The median household income in 2005 for Powell River was ,777, which is below the British Columbia provincial average of ,709.
The Powell River area is the traditional home to the Tla A'min Nation of the Mainland Comox branch of the Coast Salish peoples, who still reside there to this day, although having been forced to relocate from their original village site at the mouth of Powell River to make way for the construction of a power dam and paper mill.
Most of its population lives near the eastern shores of Salish Sea, which is part of the larger Georgia Strait between Vancouver Island and the Mainland.
With two intervening long, steep sided fjords inhibiting the construction of a contiguous road connection with Vancouver to the south, geographical surroundings explain Powell River's remoteness as a community, despite a relative proximity to Vancouver and other populous areas of the BC Coast.
The City of Powell River includes the original Townsite, which became designated a National Historic District in 1995, one of only 7 in Canada.
There is also the more populous Westview, and the Cranberry and Wildwood areas.
